A nice, light read. The protagonist, Dierdre, is a 40-year-old host of a local television program in Seattle. When her show is canceled and her roommate moves out with his boyfriend, Dierdre finds herself without a job and a home. Through a chance meeting, she's offered a place to stay in a tiny town on the eastern border of Washington and, as a result, finds her way back to success.

This book was sweet, though the protagonist was annoying. Seriously, she's 40 years old but she spends all her money on clothes, her car, eating out, etc. I wanted to shout at her to grow up! What's more, her romance moves very, very quickly, unbelievably so. And really, who offers a home to someone they've met exactly twice?

The writing was decent, and there are recipes in the back of the book - a nice touch, since Dierdre hosted a lifestyle show - but in all I wouldn't recommend it as anything other than something to pass the time.
